operative working in a democratic environment put together a memo. he explained how he was going to make the democrat ectexas political establishment a republican electoral gold mine, which he succeeded. in that memo, he wrote the words, when things are going badly, attack, attack, attack. that has always his motif. in this case, things went very, very badly, involving many very wealthy, very influential people, and his reaction is just attack the other guy. >> let me ask you this quickly. you've written two books, you know it very well d this tarnish the brand of karl rove? is this the beginning of the end of karl rover? >> it is not in my estimation the end of karl rove. remember in 2004 he was the hero, the architect who lifted george bush for reelection in difficult situation, but by 2006 he was the goat when the democrats came back. he's been in this position before when people say he's finished. anyone who thinks that karl rove is finished, his days are on the floor, he is a has been, are people, whether republican enemies or democratic opponents, are wishing for something that not
and a stale sort of polarized environment who can lead to capitol hill where we need the change to happen right now. >> we see a staggering 20 seats in the senate. that is still not reflective of the actual number of women in this country. so if you look at places -- >> more than those who vote, for that matter. >> right. and if you look at places like new hampshire, it's become a full-fledged female takeover. >> we're more interested in getting the job done than the power play. >> all right. susan, thank you so much. doug, thanks to you as well. do appreciate your time. >> thanks, craig. >>> up next, we'll tell you why there is more reason to talk about sesame street. that's right. we're still talking about sesame street but there's good reason today. and guess who is back on twitter. we'll tell you why. you're watching msnbc.

and especially on the rich. the tax initiative passed in california. and this is clearly a different environment. the republicans like to say it's a status quo election. but there are huge shifts and even the house which remained republican, more democrats voted and the republicans maintained the house only because of restricting and jerry than dering. so i do think the white house has the upper hand. but president obama has to be willing to also go over the cliff if necessary and not allow -- he can't be the one who blinks first. >> rachel, listening to what eleanor is quoting bill crystal having said this morning on the talk shows, wouldn't it have been smarter for the republicans to get to that point a week ago if not sooner before the election? >> this is a real test for both john boehner and president obama. as any negotiation works, we see in the capitol, in this area, each side has to first mark their territory, go to their corners. and after each side has clearly established with their own position, then and only then can we start to see movement toward the middle. so the interesting thi
green, all things relating to the environment and our energy policy how optimistic are you that we're going to find a solution to this in the coming years, which is to say the next four? >> you know, in hearing the president speak and reading -- it's i guess confused as an observer and i love listening to you but trying to parse out what it means because what it goes back to for me, in the election, when politicians were separating ow the economy from birth control i was like, no, it's the same. when we hear, we have to see what's economically sound, and when we talk about climate change and energy, didn't i just hear, and don't we think the future is green jobs and what that means? so kind of stepping back, makes me feel frustrated because i feel like isn't that the direction we need to be going in and how do we convince americans that, yeah, you know what, prices at pump have to go up if we want to have them not? >> you can ask somebody who has lost a business in coney island or in the rockaways if this is about jobs and growth. >> right. >> there are people who are going to take
of moving on, i think it's going to be tough, but i think the president was right that the environment's different. and i think his remarks later today, which are a huge deal in this process, i think will reflect the fact that he sees a different environment, a different possibility. the senate's ready to do a deal. and speaker boehner is a big part of the final solution, and i think he looks like he's ready to do a deal. >> i think just to get you off the hook a little bit, i think one of the keys here is what you didn't anticipate and very few people anticipated was not just that obama would win, but that he would win as decisively as he won and that the republicans would face the setbacks they faced in the senate and that so much of the political environment that's not just the presidential but across the board would be such a repudiation, such a chastening moment for republicans. that's been a big part of why the fever might break because it's broader. >> the senate defeats for me were far more chilling. >> right. >> as a republican. again, we absorbed it the first night. i remembe
one to make, but we have been becoming a much more diverse nation. in that kind of environment, you cannot have a base that shrinks and expect for your party to expand its influence. it doesn't make any mathematical sense. i think eventually those folk who want there to be a republican party are going to have to make some adjustments along some of these demographic and identity lines we have been talking about. >> maybe dr. james peterson and julian epstein could explain this to the republican party. in the meantime, gentlemen, thank you very much indeed. next, oh, where have you gone allen west? a nation turns its lonely eye to you. stay with us. >> so keith ellison is a communist. >> soledad, you know something -- >> a communist? >> i'm talking about the fact -- >> tammy baldwin is a communist. >> you can call it whatever you want. >> but i want to know what you're calling it. >> i'm talking about their beliefs. i'm calling it this. communist, progressive, marxist, socialist. >>> time for the "your business" entrepreneur of the week. kathleen and susan are encouraging customers to
but the whole political environment has changed given the success of not just president obama but democrats more broadly in congress. and it does change everyone's incentive structure. there's no one, no one, who is politically well affected positively affected if the country drops into a second dip of a massive recession in the first half of 2013. >> chris cillizza, john heilemann, thank you both very much. joining me now to discuss the fiscal cliff negotiations, from inside, the house democratic perspective, chris van hollen, ranking member of the house budget committee and someone who served on the super committee. we've not completely depressed you about what you face, you know what you face. you've been in talks that have reds during the campaign. i would argue there was nothing specific other than hints from either mitt romney or president obama during the campaign that would tell people exactly how they were going to deal with these cuts and what they were going to do and how to approach entitlements. you can argue they don't have a mandate to deal with this. how do you approach the fisca
not be a decision made exclusively by him? >> i think not. he grew up in an environment in the military where one of the first things you learn is that bad news doesn't get any better with age. the best thing you can do is tell the boss bad news as soon as it happens or as soon as possible after it happens, because it can't be fixed later the older it gets. the worse it gets the noisier it gets and the -- and eventually the inevitable is going to happen anyway. it's best to cut sooner rather than later if if you really love the country and really think what you're doing is important. even if you're pressured by the white house, the best thing to do is to get out early. >> and quickly because just one minute leicht. andrea said he's expected to testify before the cia. this investigation with benghazi do you see any parallels, anything that might also have factored in with na resignation? >> well of course there's a link. i think at some juncture if he told the truth he would say he didn't have as much to do when on the ground what went on on the ground as people think. a
environment. toure. >> thanks, kristen. right now we have andrea mitchell that broke the story about general petraeus resigning because of an extra-marital affair. andrea, tell us what's going on. >> sorry. there's a lot of noise that's going on in the newsroom. my apologies. a letter that he has sent to the work force says that he has made a terrible mistake and has had an extra-marital affair, that this compromises not just the judgment of his personal life but clearly the kind of service in the silent service, the cia, and it was an untenable situation and he has resigned and that the president has accepted that resignation, tour reechlt toure. >> andrea, what else do you know about what's going on right for you with general petraeus? >> we know that the letter has gone out to the work force to tell them that this was all about his personal indiscretion. the clear signal is that this was not about benghazi. he's not resigning as any kind of admission of flaws or faults in the intelligence gathering on benghazi. although there will be in the house and senate a continuing series of hearings
, the environment is never going to be better than it is today. let's go ahead and deal with this issue, put this issue largely in the rear view mirror, and let's focus on the greatness of this nation. >> all right. republican senator bob corker of tennessee. many thanks for your time. great to talk with you. >> thank you. >>> next up, a democrat who's a member of the budget committee will join me. what kind of a deal would he make with the gop to avoid the fiscal cliff? begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh!

an automatic resignation? maybe there would be in the current environment. i can't tell anymore what the standards are sometimes. >> well, you know, i don't know. >> i mean it. >> i doubt that. i think you're probably right. and certainly it doesn't apply to members of congress, but they're elected officials and these are appointed officials. the fbi basically says we decided to tell the dni, the director of national intelligence james clapper, when we were all done what happened here because we thought he should know as in essence a personnel matter. under the new system the director of the cia reports to clapper. clapper is his boss, and they thought that clapper should know. he controls the security clearances. let him make the significance about whether it was proper to keep david petraeus on the job. obviously clapper felt it wasn't and told petraeus he ought to resign. >> i guess it's one of those cases once people know about it, the catch-22 is you have to do something about it or else you're part of the cover-up. maybe that's the way they look at it. pete williams, as always,
